I was so pleased to meet smart and stylish couple, Anna and Travis, for their Timberline Lodge engagement shoot. The historic Timberline Lodge completed construction in 1937 and I loved Anna and Travis’ homage to that era by wearing vintage Pendleton! Tagging along for the adventure was their adorable Bluetick Coonhound pup, Leroy. (I esp. love Blueticks because I had one named Ida!) We were lucky we were able to catch a glimpse of Mt. Hood’s peak through the thick clouds that brought lots of snow and wind in its company. Anna & Travis braved the wind and Leroy too! After having some fun in the snow, we traveled back down the mountain to capture less windy photos amidst the snowy trees. The warm glow of light inside the lodge made for a wildly romantic winter scene. Thank you for allowing me the pleasure of capturing such a sweet time for you two and I’m so looking forward to their Mt. View Orchard wedding this month!
Aaron and Allison, a couple near and dear to my heart, recently celebrated their wedding anniversary. I was beyond honored when Allison asked me to photograph her wedding because Allison had actually spent a year or so interning for me while pursuing a degree in art school. It was during this time that I was able to meet Aaron (her then boyfriend) and her sweet family. Allison is now a full time designer at Columbia Sportswear and I am such a proud Mama Bear! Allison and Aaron had a fun, wine-country celebration beneath the trees at the gorgeous Domaine de Broglie Vineyard. Formally known as “Vista Hills Estate”, this beautiful piece of land is now owned by the Copolla Family who have brought with them a fresh and revitalized energy to these famous grounds. Your Perfect Bridesmaid totally nailed the day’s timeline and curated every detail to perfection. Allison, who is super close with her family, chose to do a first look with her dad and brother before meeting Aaron at the end of the aisle. The heart-warming moment didn’t leave a dry eye around. Surrounded by the warm glow of golden hour in the vines, Aaron gave Allison the most loving looks as they exchanged vows. I am so grateful to not only have had the opportunity to capture this beautiful occasion but to have had the opportunity to cultivate the relationship I so cherish with Allison and Aaron. Cheers to Aaron and Allison on their recent anniversary!
I knew immediately after photographing their Portland street art engagements that whimsical & fun couple, Alison and Nathan, would have an unforgettable wedding. Alison’s flower crown created by Solabee Flowers was a beautiful expression of her bright personality. The couple’s magical vision for their special day became a reality thanks to the amazing work done by Carissa and her team from Adornment Events. Each detail was creative, thoughtful, and a complete representation of Alison and Nathan’s free-spirited and fun vibe! There was something for everyone to enjoy with lawn games, giant jenga, props for a DIY photo booth, a gorgeous cake by Dream Cakes, and even tiny succulents to admire on each table. The most unique aspect of the entire day was definitely the silent disco epic-ness that went down! Chad Dowling Productions provided headphones for each guest allowing everyone to party into the wee hours of the morning while all dancing to the same music! Not a dancer, cool- have some s’mores or a cigar by the bonfire! I loved the backyard, kick off your shoes and be happy energy of this great day! This wedding was so full of summer love and I couldn’t be more honored to have captured all of it. Thank you Alison and Nathan for choosing me to document your amazing day!
Will and Sarah’s barn wedding was intimate, fun and beyond memorable. It’s always an honor to receive an inquiry from a fellow photographer, and Will’s work is beautiful. Will and Sarah’s love story has brought them around the globe together to live in California and wed in Oregon, where Sarah is originally from. The family and friends of the couple came together at the Stein Boozier barn in Wilsonville, Oregon and celebrated, toasted and danced the night away. Rachel Coddington’s fresh and fun coordination and florals filled the barn with color along with the incredibly seasonal food from Verde Cocina, and DJ’s from Noteworthy DJ’s the night was one to remember. With a choreographed dance from Will to Sarah, as he’s always hated to dance, and she loves to, so he snuck out to rehearsal for months before the big day and killed it! What a sweet and memorable wedding and I’m happy to have documented all the love! Thanks Sarah and Will!
Laura and Edward’s wedding was a dreamy day of remarkable views, a beautiful couple and a ton of fun. The Columbia Gorge Hotel is a historic and picturesque spanish-style hotel right on the water, complete with it’s very own waterfall and it’s now one of my favorite wedding venues in the Gorge! Can’t wait to share the rest from this day!
